"Thunder Raiders" video out now!
REZET just released a final video off of the latest studio album entitled "Deal With It!".
The featured track is "Thunder Raiders", the very song the band's frequently used cry "RISE!" got its origin from.
Ricky Wagner comments on song and video:
"Brothers and sisters, friends and followers, dearest Rezetbangers,
When you release a video, you usually let the pictures and the music speak for themselves. That usually is statement enough.
Whilst we wanted to drop one more video off of our latest album 'Deal With It!', basically ever since we wrote the track sometime in 2018, we had no idea how much 2020 would undermine the whole objective behind 'Thunder Raiders'.
That very rather untypical REZET song ever since is our cry for justice and we wanted to shout it out loud for a long time already. The most recent (global) movements to articulate injustice and rise up against unequal legislative and executive treatment screamed to have the video out at long last. Yet - it’s not about utilizing the murderer of George Floyd for promotional reasons. By far not. It goes way beyond. The tragic kind of oppressors’ violence isn't meant to glorify a music video. What it is? It is no science-fiction, it is no fairy tale, it's reality, and this reality is no lie. "Thunder Raiders" is our cry for justice for every human being on this planet. We don't differ in heritage, religious believes, colour of skin or whatsoever. We are all one.
Most lyrics of the album 'Deal With It!' are on (contemporary) global topics and we are often asked if REZET is a political band. We tend to deny that question, because politics never was our primary drive to perform music. But writing lyrics, it’s a reflection of the writer’s world. It's about topics that make us think about birth, life, death - and the journey in between. We encourage everyone to be awake in times where truth is hard to be noticed and to stand up for human rights, not only your own or your loved ones’, but everyone's. Stand up and intervene when injustice is being done. Violence causes violence, either ways. We appeal to words, wisdom and love. Justice must find its way, period!
Stand up - when injustice makes its way to danger our nature of being free and equal. Take advantage of your nature given power to question things, to learn and to love.

We hope to see you live again soon, until then: stay sane everyone!
The band states on their official Facebook:
"Rezetbangers, enjoy the incoming spring.
Even if we're isolated now, we know better times are ahead.
If something isn't good, it hasn't come to an end, as they say.
See you soon!"

Back to writing!
Dearest Russian Rezetbangers,
it comes with a super heavy (Metal) heart that we are forced to cancel our upcoming Russia Tour, due to reasons beyond our power, namely the much-quoted Corona-Virus.
Due to global travel restrictions, no one, at this stage, can foresee the travel in one day, not to mention in the course of the next 15 days…
There is no guarantee for us to even make it into Russia. Not to mention how exiting the country back into Germany in roughly 2 weeks would look like.
We even had been discouraged to start any travel by German authorities, who again issue travel-warnings and recommendations in cooperation with Russian officials…
Therefore, we sadly need to announce the postponement of the tour dates in Russia this March.
But this comes with a promise: we will be re-scheduling all shows possible as soon as travel restrictions had been banned and we can foresee how and when touring will be possible again.
Please bear with us in these difficult times. We are truly sorry, but promise to be back soon!
"Dealing With Russia" - Teaser online!
REZET will tour Russia by next week, to perform 13 headline shows all across the country:
REZET to headline "Pedal To The Metal" in Copenhagen, Denmark!
After playing the Danish capital in spring of 2019, alongside NERVOSA from Brazil, the boys will return almost exactly a year later to headline.
Special guests will be new Danish horror punk outfit ARCHANGEL - so make sure you're not allergic to blood!
Happy birthday, Ricky Wagner!
Dealing With Russia!
REZET announce Russian headline tour for next month!
The band states on their official Facebook:
REZET to tour Russia in March of this year!
After our successful trip supporting M:PIRE OF EVIL (now known as VENOM INC.) there in 2015, we're coming back for you exactly five years later! Spread the word and tell your friends, we can't wait to thrash with you all again!"
50 years of Heavy Metal!
"Today - 50 years ago - history was made.
Our reason to exist and our call to shape generations to come has been unleashed half a decade ago.
Be it Osbourne's haunting vocals, Iommi's devilish Tritone and riffs, Butler's virtuosity or Ward's swinging and thundering drums: this will - for us and most of you - always be remembered as the birth of Metal.
These days, this music is stronger than ever and still unites those who follow its path.
To honor this legacy, we're in the midst of writing our tribute to this fateful date for our next release.
Celebrate today by putting this milestone of musical history on and look forward to many more decades of Heavy Metal thunder rolling your way...
Thank you, Black Sabbath!"
